Orange Man 22 ,

Exceptional Storytelling!

As an avid listener of podcasts, I especially love the high-quality storytelling of this podcast. The 27 Club not only is interesting subject matter, but the quality of the writing and the narration is what makes this one of the best podcasts I have ever listened to. The artwork of the poster puts this over the top! Amazing work, and KEEP THE CONTENT COMING!

Sound effects are truly annoying

What are those clicks in the Phil Spector/Lenny Bruce? Not cool, rather extremely annoying. Can’t imagine what the intent was on doing this.

sf bender ,

Vocal fry ruins it

I live these stories but her vocal fry narration really bums me out. She has a nice voice , just a little to affected.
